So I’ve been scathing about Dr Who lately.
A lot really.
But it’s hard to accept that a show you are a fan off can be so … anti-climatic.
Okay, so I hate Peter Capaldi in the role I think we all realise that by now. He just isn’t the Doctor and I am getting so fed up with people telling me I’m wrong. It’s my opinion folks, you like him – then that is your opinion… deal with it.
Saturday’s episode, ‘Heaven Sent’ saw Peter Capaldi having out of body experiences, talking to himself in the guise of a dead Clara and punching through something harder than diamonds.
Obviously in order to get to the bit where he could punch through this wall he first had to leave himself clues and then solve his own clues. Confused yet? Not forgetting that this apparently took him millions of years and several thousand deaths. Luckily he was able to use the transporter to bring back a version of himself so that when he died he also lived.
So why didn’t he leave himself the clue of creating some explosive compound that would help get through the wall?
Why did he have to punch a hole big enough for an elephant to get through?
And then we got the thing that Moffat has been leading up to all season. His destination. Not so much a surprise with the amount of hints that Moffat has been dropping in all of his interviews lately!
And it turns out that he’s been in his own confession disc all along! How amazing was that.. especially as it ties in nicely with the beginning episode. How’s that for amazing continuity? And of course some of that wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff.
So there he is, in the middle of a desert standing looking around and then from out of nowhere a young kid comes and stands next to him. Convenient or what? So all full of vengeance for Clara and full of pent up feelings he turns to the boy and tells him to go off and tell them he’s coming!!
Er, he who? Does the boy ask who he is or who he’s supposed to tell? Or does he just run off? Is the boy some kind of lookout?
It’s all nicely set for the finale next week when we’ll get the answers to all those pesky questions … such as why am I still watching this? Will Moffat quit anytime soon? How can anyone watch this and think it’s good TV?
